Week Thirty-Five: Such is Life

Hello my loved ones,

Things this week are well. However as I am typing this there is not a lot I can remember.

The sun in Bindura is hot still, but the temperature continues to decline. There are days I want to wear a coat, but haven't yet.

The Bindura Zone is doing well. This week there were 3 different companionship hosting baptisms. It was wonderful. Though as zone leaders we attended all of them, and as the only one with a car we also had to drive to other chapels looking for extra baptismal clothes. So it was slightly chaotic.

The picture, though slightly blurry, is of the Woodbrook District. All 3 companionship were white-washing. All 6 of us are new to the areas this transfer. And yet things are going well still.

Elder Chibanda and I are doing well. Unfortunately, one of those we were going to baptize got a job offer in Harare, to leave the day we were going to baptize her. But ah well, such is life. But fortunately the Brother we are going to baptize on the 4th is still eager and strong.
Today we are planning on going on a hike. Which hopefully will be super fun.

Have a wonderful week. May the Lord bless you all.
-Elder Wilcken
